I think his tats are steep. No offence, guys, but you are not to judge him. Remember Beckham? Everyone loves him (almost everyone) and he has how many tats? Hmm, I think a lot of. Two angels and something else, I don't remember. Actually Messi's tattoos are great pieces of art. I think I saw something similar to his right shoulder's tattoo on the site, but not sure..

Pelé admits he nearly played for Real Madrid in his playing days, but if he would play today, he'd definitely try to join Barça. On top of that, he thinks Leo is the greatest and considers Andrés Iniesta to be his favourite Spanish player:

http://www.gazzettaworld.com/news/international-football/pele-barcelona-star

Now if he had said his favourite club was Real, the best was CR and Ramos was his favourite, I'd consider him a senile old fool. Now though, he's a wise football sage indeed :D

Lol , Garbage Newspaper with one of the most butthurt blog ever.
All I want is for him to score a goal in the clasico. Marca are a huge embarrassment
journalism these days, smh.

not sure if it's even comparable to the english ones. but damn, english papers are so relentless to arsenal no matter what, quite comical sometimes lol
Article is filled with butter and salt,lol.marca is an embarrassment.
https://www.fcbarcelona.cat/futbol/primer-equip/noticies/2016-2017/andre-gomes-signara-i-sera-presentat-dimecres-com-a-nou-jugador-del-fc-barcelona

I like how club is announcing the transfer fees insted of that undisclosed BS.

We pay 35M fixed , 20M in performance based variables & another 15M if he was to win Ballon d'Or.
Loved how Marca were running the story that we will pay 70m. Yeah, like he'd win the golden ball.
Not surprising , they had to try to save the image on their master , Perez just can't afford Madrid fans to realize that he got schooled by a Rat.

Also Marca has been taking L's forever when it comes to these signings , they had Suarez , Rakitic , ronaldhino , Villa , gomes etc all on their front pages in reals Jersey just few days before all of them joined us.
Terrible deal! If he wins the Ballon d'Or 100x, we are almost broke!
+2
Who got their account removed? 😵
Think it was Mikhitargaryen , TBH he was creating some trouble on English club pages. He was one of them rare Barca fan who also happen to like Manu.
+2
He was not a Barca fan Malik. That was a cover up.
+4
Just curious Tomi,is he the same 'Luis van gaal' guy?
Adriano leaves for Besiktas, they will pay €600K for Adriano in 3 installments. 1st year 150K, 2nd year 200K and 3rd year 250K.

Two points - I know he has been poor for last season and half but we also have to remember he did great job for us as utility player , even at time when case for him to start could have been made he accepted the lesser role.

Second point - this is why I thought 7M we're getting for Tello is great , we're simply piss poor at selling our players , last season Roma was willing to pay 5-6 M for him and lazio 3M , this season Lazio wanted him for free and we couldn't convince them for even that 3M.

BTW check out his pictures arriving at turkey , Besiktas fans are going crazy over his signing.
Roma bid 3m last season for him which Lucho rejected and we gave him a new contract. Well, that turned out great
How are your academy players nowadays? Any young talents getting promoted?
^ Samper getting promoted this season , lad have potential to be world class if he is given right guidance
+1
^Samper has been in our list for 2 years already, and even played couple of games in La Liga/CDR and CL for us.
^That's because Lucho called on him to come play for that specific game. He wasn't with the 1st team 100% of the time. If he's practicing/spending time with Busquets and Mascherano consistently, we could start to see some serious growth in Samper. After some matches of course.
Gloryroad is correct , he is promoted this season before that he was called for specific games
Noooooooooooooooooo Messi dayed his hair to platinum blonde. The one thing that Messi did so far that I don't like.

Messi is a blonde now nooooooooooooooo
+3
:'(
anything for views/fame i guess.
Just a rant, but I wanted to get it off my chest. I still love Leo, but in recent years some things have made me frown or even facepalm about his personal life.

1) Tattoo's: I dislike tattoo's, especially if they're far too big or plain ugly, like the weird thing on Messi's leg that's supposed to look like his son's hand
2) Taxes: the obvious one; even though he might not have known at all what was going on, I think he could've simply admitted he was in the wrong the moment his father and accountants said it was so. It seemed to me he was trying to deflect all guilt by pleading ignorance. That really made me lose a lot of respect for him.
3) Resigning from Argentina NT: No idea why he did that, but maybe his personal troubles and the fact Argentinians seems to expect impossible things from him forced this decision. I still think he made a rash in-the-moment decision he will soon regret. But perhaps it'll make people in Argentina realize he's only human.
4) This:
https://scontent-ams3-1.cdninstagram.com/t51.2885-15/e35/13694734_1727846860814503_1424374626_n.jpg

Really Leo? REALLY?
WTF.

I mean, I'm not one to judge people on their looks all that much, but when you see guys like Iniesta or Xavi you don't think they're weird thugs who happen to be Jesus-freaks in the process. I miss the normal guy Messi was (or seemed to be) just a year or 2-3 ago. It's like he's tilted at one moment and went crazy experimental mode.

Next up: piercings and face tattoo's.
+4
blame ramsey, he started this blonde trend xD
+1
About the tattoo and hairstyle, he's been close friends with neymar for the last 3 years. Coincidence? I think not.
+1
I personally don't like tattoos but come on, to each his own. He has his children's names, hand prints and Jesus carved on his body. Whatever floats his boat. You want him to admit he's in the wrong and go to jail? Very naive. Whether he knew or not even people who commit murder plead not guilty. I agree on the argentina thing. That was a bad move. If it was me, I'd cry and say, "I'll continue trying until my legs can't do this any more". Horrible thing to do for the greatest player ever.

Lastly, I think he should be benched for the blonde hair. What was he thinking? If Nasri does something its a sign you should avoid it.
+2
I'd like to see Messi getting benched at Camp Nou for something as trivial as his hairstyle, the fans would be up in arms.

Again to each his own; if King Messi wants blond hair let him have it. YOLO

Tats again is personal preference. It is 2016, where I'm from, 12 year old boys and girls are getting tattoos without parental consent I think it has become a big part of today's culture that nobody should be offended by tattoos anymore. I still cannot believe there are jobs which do not permit tattoos, that is one of the worst forms of discriminations that exist today apart from racism and sexism.
+1
You don't choose your race or your sex, it's different than deciding to get tattoos all over yourself when some professions require a more proffessional appearance.

He's a footballer, what he does to his appearance is his business. Points 2 and 3 resonate a lot with me because I had a lot of respect for him until recently.
+1
Jeroen- Your post indicates that you should become a Ronaldo fan
+7
^ There's a fifth point - Diving
And a sixth point- whining.

Ronaldo gets disqualified right there.
+3
I still have loads of admiration for Leo, but he fell from being an idol to just being admirable. Xavi and Iniesta are miles above him in terms of respect to me.

Ronaldo is a man of whom I admire his determination, his athleticism and skill and his sometimes clear acts of selflessness when it comes to his possessions.

However, on the field he still annoys the crap out of me, something Leo has never done. He might look like a drug dealer now, he might (un)willingly be a tax fraud and he might've rashly quit the NT, the main source of pride a footballer can achieve. But he's still a guy who plays the most wonderful football and behaves very sportsmanlike 98% of the games. Unlike Ronaldo.
+5
@Jeroen, nobody can be perfect in all aspects of life. At least he is showing that he is human after all.

I think there is enough footballing perfectness about him to make him the best in a generation. As for the hair and the NT issues - I think both will sort themselves out in a matter of few months. I can bet on it.
+4
@J,
1.tattoo : I dislike it,I don't understand why people want to put something in their beautiful body.I heard you can't even donate your blood if tattoos are in your hand.
But it's personal choice,I have to respect the personal freedom.
2.tax : of course that's bad and Messi is guilty,whatever the reason may be he still be blamed,
3.retirement : he is exhausted and tired of people blaming for every single loses Argentina faces.and it's not fair too,it's been 23.years since Argentine won an international competition and I have seen much much better Argentine team than Messi's current.I think he will return soon.
4.style: he looks awful in that blonde hair,by the way barca players notoriously known for their bad sense of fashion,lol.or since he is just Argentine Aron Ramsey,he might copied his Idol's style,who knows.

Conclusion: it's all personal preference and there's a reason xavi is my all time favorite footballer,but at the end,the only think that matter is how he performs in the pitch or how he behave himself,as long as that doesn't change,he is always my cute little Leo:)
+1
I concur with Jeroen and 4ever, in that I think Tatoos don't beautify the person, it just make them look uglier, in that sense I like how Ronaldo doesn't alter his natural body, but sure enough he is extravagant when it comes to hair gel ;-)
Well, Messi is an introvert and he is facing adversity at the NT level, so I'm not surprised that for the last 3 years that he has not succeeded with Argentina, he is taking it on his own body rather than lambasting the AFA.
From a footballing perspective he is simply a divine gift, I don't think that will ever change, I also wish he didn't give his body a whipping because of the failures, but what can you do :-(
As for the tax, my gut feeling is as he said, he is just playing football and doesn't really spend time on his finances, but the people doing so are definitely not helping him, trying to skimp on paying taxes.
I love tattoos and it's a way to express yourself, your body is a blank canvas with works of art. I'm gonna start working on a sleeve this up coming month don't understand how people bitch and complain about them, only reason to complain is if the art work is atrocious (but at that point getting free tattoos our tattoos from a friend trying to get into the tattoo world is probably not a good idea).

Taxes meh every millionaire/billionaire cheats on their taxes are we surprised here? Nope they just need to pay that money back and then some (to me honestly fair...jail time is pointless if they continue to do it the government should just take all the money/possessions the person has and have them start from the beginning again).

Quitting the national team sucks but I understand his frustration not our place to judge...If we were in his same position we'd probably do the same.

And his hair? Who cares at least it looks and sounds better than a Justin Bieber album abt day of the week...


On that note I like Reese's Peanut Butter Cups...
+1
I can't believe people still judge others based on tattoos. It's his body. You may not like it but how can you start liking somebody less because they choose to do something with their body.

For me I find tattoos really cool. Like SG said, it's a form of art. The only thing I don't like is when people get their girlfriend's or boyfriend's name tattooed. But even then, it doesn't bother me since it's their body.
Hey! At least Messi did picked up some style points in memories of thuggish Alves now that he's gone :)

Seriously though, Messi's tattoos are flat out ugly. He might as well get nose and tongue piercing next. That would be priceless!
i cant leave this discussion without commenting.

i`m a bit shocked about some people here. saying you usually dont care about how other people look but messi getting a tattoo makes him less likeable or looking like a drug dealer.
the reason i`m writing because i got quite some tattoos. both arms and hands, legs, throat, chest etc. well, it didnt change me or my personality. my girlfriends body is pretty much covered with tattoos. believe it or not, she is a mother of 2 wonderful children who are almost grown ups, looks better at 43 than most young woman and works with children in a kindergarden. crazy world ha?
she even got some facial tattoos as her background is from the aimara indigenous people in chile. some people cant believe that she`s working with children, well why? is she a bad person because she`s got a lot of tattoos?
its the year 2016 and there are really numerous people out there who simply shocked when seeing a tattooed person on the street. that shows a lot about peoples education.

i know a lot of people with tattoos that i dont like, piercings where i think i`d never do it myself, cracked tongues etc. i may not like some things but it doesnt effect my relationship to that person.
thats the point. you may like it or not but it shouldnt have an effect on your thoughts about that person.

i think the times when prisoners where wearing tattoos are over for a long time. maybe some people should know that the art of tattoos is one that goes back thousands of years
^^what this guy said.
Nautilus, I'm sorry if I somehow offended you, that wasn't my intention. But don't you think he looks more... extreme and thuggish now? If you don't think so, then I guess we have a very different look on what thugs look like.

Here in Belgium tattoo's aren't uncommon, but if you look like Leo looks in that picture, lots of tattoo's, hair dyed in a fugly colour that doesn't suit the person and a beard in a very different colour (also dyed?), then people will avoid you or glance past you, pretending to ignore you because they don't want to stare. He used to look like this 2 years ago:
http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-npVo_ruiIJI/Tyuq9o7WswI/AAAAAAAADCQ/0EO8RM0aEwI/s1600/Messi-at-beach-with-girlfriend.jpg

Neither look means the guy is a better or worse person, obviously, but I'm pretty sure most people worldwide who don't know Messi (the 5-6 that don't) will feel more at ease with the younger version because he LOOKS less intimidating.
@nautilus,there's no problem for sticking tattoos,it's just a personal preference that I don't like it.I like to keep my body away from all that and am a hairy person who doesn't like even to shave the body:)
Lol Jeroen I don't know where you live in Belgium but you must not go out very often or you must be very uncomfortable downtown
Completely with Nautilus on this one.

Tattoos are an expression of one's self just like the clothes you wear or the haircut you decide to have. To each his own. Who are we to judge. Not like someone is forcing me to do it on my own body.

I was once helped on the road (fixing a bust tire) by a couple who got off a Harley Davidson with 73 tattoos and a viking beard on the male. Nicest people I have met.

@Jeroen, no matter what Messi does he ain't going to look thuggish lol. He is a small boy. I don't care how he looks - unless I idolised his previous looks (which I am sure nobody does lol. Ronaldo wins on that one).
Messi to join the squad travelling to St. George’s Park training camp on Monday. He was given extended vocation along with other players that played in Euros and Copa but he decided to return back early by two weeks.

He seems motivated to do it all again :D

Also its not surprising his motivation his high , people are talking about him like he and Barca had s**t last season , we have set the bar so high that Double by us to most people feels like we have not done anything special.
+2
Cue for Barca website to use #WeAreAllTraining hashtag :P
This has got to be the biggest transfer joke in the history of football. Higuain for £79m? What the f**k is up with that? This makes Suarez and Neymar deals look like daylight robbery.

I am never going to complain about our management overpaying for players. Ever!

Also I'm not sure where this sport is heading. A few years ago €30m was a big deal. Now €90m seems to be the new €30m.
+3
It is pure madness. At this rate I can see Atletico wanting £ 150m for Griezmann. And by this valuation Neymar is surely worth £200m
+1
Lmfao

1st of all he is 28

2nd he is Higuain ffs
+1
He'll be 29 this year in another 4 months. He was valued at 65million euros while lewa was valued at 75m and both benz and Aguero were valued at 60m. These three players are younger than him. Higuain had an outstanding season but that doesn't hike his priced by up 30m. He has averaged a 0.5 goals to games ratio all his life. Last season was an anomaly at 0.92. The fact is Juventus are getting a boat load of money from United for Pogba which Napoli used to suck out as much money as possible. Great negotations from Napoli. Apparently, Napoli fans are pissed off about the sale.
He's a beast in the Serie A, which is why Napoli is sad and Juve is excited and willing to pay for him. I think your dislike of Higuain overshadows the fact that he's improved every year in the Serie A.

A soon to be 29 year old is not bad, that's their prime. He can go for 3-4 years at a solid 25 goals a season in Serie A.
I don't dislike him. When you guys sold him, he was doing almost as well as benzema and I thought it was a mistake for you. I just think he's not worth close to €94m. You bought Bale around the same price 3 years ago and I don't think euro has declined as much not has inflation gone up as much.
+1
^ It is not the Euro going down or the inflation % but maybe the fact that sponsors are pouring in more and more money into the sport that is causing the transfer fees to shoot up to crazy
Of course. United is about to pay €120m to juventus for Pogba. Was Napoli going to let them have their best player for nothing?
+1
Hi is dreamfooty still being used or updated? :D
Think last season was the last one.

ohh shucks; thanks for the Info :D
